"Because you Love Them"
HERE’S WHY ALL YOUR FRIENDS ARE HEADING TO TAKE THEIR PUPS TO DOGGIE DAYCARE.
Let’s Face It. We’re working more hours, and that means less time spent with our beloved fur babies!
While some pups are content to sleep the day away waiting for you to come home, there are many pups that need a little something extra to do during the day.
And that’s where Doggie Daycare comes into play.
Whether you’re dropping your dog off at daycare every day, or just once or twice a week (or month), there are plenty of reasons why your pup will thrive in this environment.
Here are our top reasons why you should give doggy daycare a go.
Dogs need to be around other dogs in order to learn how to act properly.
They learn what’s appropriate to do and not do, how to introduce themselves to new faces, and how to play nicely with others.
If you can, start the socialization training as soon as possible—Here at Just About Pets we have many new puppies that come in, and have plenty of Dogs who started coming when they were just a wee pup!
In the above pictures you’ll see Zed! The Mastiff X Puppy is now a big, socialized and happy boy who loves his daycare friends!
If you start young, your dog will become a lot more confident when it comes to interacting with strange dogs out in public!
Great Outlet for Energy
You know what your dog is like when you come home from work—he just can’t wait to play with you!!!… and that may not be the first thing on your mind after a long day.
But exercise IS critical for a healthy and happy dog, and he’ll definitely get that @ doggie day care.
All that running around and playing is a wonderful way for him to expend excess energy!!
Your pup may be lonely
“It’s so lonely at home all by myself!” Because your dog can’t actually tell you this in words, he’ll show you by being destructive and chewing on things he shouldn’t.
Many dogs don’t like being at home alone and benefit from the company of other dogs. In doggie daycare, your dog will get plenty of attention and playtime with other dogs.
Occasionally, you’re not in a position to rush home from work to let him out.
Hey, we all have to work late unexpectedly. But your dog has been home all day, and he needs to go pee.
That’s not a concern when your dog is spending the day at doggie daycare—it’s just one less thing that you don’t have to worry about.
A Change of Scenery
Even if your dog is fine with being home alone all day, it’s a good idea to change up his routine every once in a while.
Give him a break from barking at the mailman and sleeping on the couch.
Doggie daycare will be like a mini vacation for him.
Making New Friends
We all need friends—and your dog is no exception. Doggie daycare encourages your dog to make new friends. If your dog makes a BFF, you can set up a doggy playdate outside of daycare for walks or a romp at the dog park on the weekend. Besides, it’s a wonderful way for you to meet new dog people.

Do you truly know what your pet is breathing in? Did you know that some of the cleaning products in your home MAY be TOXIC for your pet?
Pets are more vulnerable than people to exposure to toxins in and around the home. Since pets are smaller, they're closer to carpets, garage floors, lawns and restricted spaces which may harbor chemical and pesticide residues.
With the onslaught of chemicals that face you and your pet day to day, how are you to avoid harmful toxins that can build up in the body and have damaging and lasting effects?
Flea Control Chemicals and SOME Essential Oils
Flea control is a challenge for most pet owners.
Flea repellent products labelled as ‘natural’ may still be toxic to your pet. The chemical d’Limonene, derived from citrus peels and found in many natural anti-flea products, can be highly toxic to cats. Flea sprays and dips which contain “all natural Pyrethrin” can be toxic to some pets, and Pyrethroids , synthetic derivatives of pyrethrins, expose your pet to even more chemicals.
Flea control formulations which use essential oils can be particularly hazardous to cats. Essential oils are absorbed rapidly into their skin and enter the bloodstream, and because cats do not efficiently metabolize essential oils, exposure can build to toxic levels.
And while there may be no initial adverse reaction, the effects of essential oils can be cumulative and manifest themselves at a later date.
Other natural ingredients known to cause allergic reactions or have toxic effects in some animals include Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) oil and Pennyroyal oil.
This highly alkaline product is especially concerning to pets as it is denser than air, which means those poisonous fumes are pet level. For your pet, who breathes in faster than you do, that means more toxins are absorbed into their system.
Though naturally occurring, chlorine in high concentrations can be deadly to pets. Avoid bleach whenever possible, using oxygen “bleaches” instead in your laundry and for stain removal. Chlorine can be found in anything from laundry detergents to all-purpose cleaners.
Ammonia is a very alkaline natural product and many people choose it because it’s a highly effective cleaning agent.
However, it’s simply not worth it when you consider that ammonia is also highly toxic to your pet, causing possible severe damage to eyes, skin, stomach and even causing death with enough exposure.
You must stay on the lookout too, because your pet can be exposed a few ways: through inhalation of fumes or ingestion of product or residues.
Ammonia is found commonly in oven cleaners, window cleaners, floor waxes, and fertilizers – often as ammonium hydroxide.
With the rise of cheap, DIY cleaners, some pure and “natural” ingredients such as ammonia are finding their way into homes again. If you have pets, keep these toxic cleaners well out of reach, or better yet, don’t use them at all.
Used for fragrance in household cleaners and deodorizers, cosmetics, packaging, toys, food, and many other products, phthalates are known hormone-disruptors. Since hormones control so much more than just reproduction in your pet’s system (and yours), phthalates have been linked to indirect symptoms such as weight gain, cancers, and developmental delays. You’ve probably heard of the commonly known phthalate, BPA, but there are many more.
Formaldehyde, while commonly known as a preservative and embalming fluid, is also found in many cleaning products for its antibacterial effects. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen in humans and can also cause a range of uncomfortable physical symptoms, including irritation of the mouth and throat lining. Exposure usually comes from inhalation, though you can absorb small amounts through the skin as well. The biggest concern for your pet would be inhaling formaldehyde through vapours in the air from cleaning products. Though it doesn’t have to be listed on your cleaner ingredient list, other names for formaldehyde include: formalin, formic aldehyde, methanediol, methanol, methyl aldehyde, methylene glycol, and methylene oxide.
